Rio Ave vs Benfica

tonight we play against Rio Ave, at 20.30 GMT, and it will be of course a must win game

this is one of the toughest teams in the league, fighting for the europe league spots and in their stadium teams usually have a hardtime, so i'm expecting a lot of work, but trust the team will be prepared to fight and give it all to win the match

players called by Rui Vitória:

Goalies – Ederson , Paulo Lopes

Defenders – Grimaldo, Luisão, Lindelof, Eliseu, Sílvio, Jardel , André Almeida

Midfield- Fejsa, Samaris, Gaitán, Salvio, Pizzi, Talisca, Carcela , Renato Sanches

Forwards – Raúl Jiménez, Mitroglou, Jonas

Guedes and Nélson Semedo were called for the B team, to help them ..but i dont think this is the solution, Guedes is a player that imo has his place in the A team, full stop , Nélson hasnt fully recovered yet but basically, in spite of their talent, jumping in the B team for a match ? how will that help them? the B team has lost 5 very important players this season ( and that can explain all the goals that have been suffered), but don't think this is the solution

having said that, good to see Silvio back( isnt he better than Eliseu..i mean seriously? if Rui doesnt play him, will have his reasons, but how bad did he fall after breaking his leg not to able to play ahead of Eliseu...)


FORÇA BENFICA!!!!!!!!

we won !!!!


wasnt able to watch most of the game, only following it every couple mins to check on the result, and only at the 71th min was finally able to sat in front of the TV...jimenez scored like 1min afterwards, soo good

yet another decisive goal from him, and as expected another tough win, and much suffering to the fans

but we made it yet again, FORÇA BENFICA!



ps. shame hearing fans leaving the stadium complaining about having paid ticket ( 30€ and such) and no seats available, forced to watch the game standing , or on the stairs....absurd, and should be seriously investigated by the league, this level of greed needs to be dealt with

Unless they bought SRO tickets, wouldn't the tickets have their seat location printed on it? Did they sell multiple tickets for the same seat?

dont know, i was watching the after match interview they make to the fans leaving the stadium and a benfica fan was very upset saying he paid 30€ and had no seat, and like many others had to either stand or sit on the stairs, then another fan later refered there were very poor conditions, so yes something went wrong

The next match is on Friday at home Guimaraes. Followed by a quick turnaround and hosting Braga on Monday for the Taca de Correio semis.

I have all Liga NOS () games on auto-record but only watch the Porto or Benfica games because of Mexican Invasion

Like I told Ana before you guys got him, Raul is a big, strong guy with lots of attitude. I'm glad he is showing up for you all.
